2.68/5  rDev -33.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Pours out a hazed, dark yellow toned body with a sudsy, bubbly, white head.

Smell: Sourish, funky notes atop the basic barley with touches of lemon rind and a floral touch blooming into a scent of menthol.

Taste: A faintly sweet taste of oven-crisped barley grains. Low, low hint of lemony citrus. Sliced tarnished fruits cut by unclean hands. Spiciness astringency akin to mentho-lyptus cough drops. Drying finish replete with muddled tastes.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Lightly carbonated, so don't let that sudsy head fool you.

Overall: I wasn't too fond at all of the flavor profile here and felt it just lacked pizazz as well as any cheerful effervescence.

Chilled bottle into a glass. A toast to ramnuts for sending this my way. Thanks, Frank!

A: Pours a brilliantly clear sunset orange-copper body that looks darker than I expected for a saison. Even a mild pour yields 4 fingers of well-retaining off-white head, and it leaves great streaks of lace down the sides of the glass. There's more foam than beer in my glass, but other than that, it looks great.

S: An intriguing aroma of lemon zest, apple skins, green grapes, bananas, a touch of earth, white pepper, and restrained, musty yeast. Some light sweetness to the nose gives it an aroma reminiscent of a tripel. A touch of alcohol knocks it down a peg.

T: Mild sweetness leads the way, lending a nice accent to the fruity ester-given flavors of apples, pears, grapes, and bananas. The beer closes with a touch of white pepper and yeast in the finish. Earthy flavors emerge in the aftertaste.

M: This isn't particularly dry, and a little wash of carbonation that closes each sip creates a distracting, burpy experience that prevents the beer from being completely refreshing. But it's solid.

O: A decent saison, but I've had better.

We’ve got a gusher...the beer itself is a hazed golden orange color with a very large white head. A nice fruitiness on the nose, mostly tropical fruit type notes. Bread and cracker malts give it some substance and there is a lot of yeast in the aroma as well. The flavor isn’t quite as good as I would hope. It’s somewhat boozy and there’s a little bit of cardboard and metal to it. Still, some grass, fruit, malt, and even a little bit of spice, which are pleasant characteristics.

Bottle from Made in Oregon.

Body is a cloudy mellow gold. Stiff, stubborn, popmarked off-white head.

Smells of pungent clove, bitter rind, & fruit juice. Dusty malt, leaves, alcohol, & Play-Doh on the backend. Unrelated, but the wax on the cap has this awesome ambergris scent to it.

Belgian, sticky tripel sort of sweetness. Pretzel-like malt. Lemon twang. Mellow yeast. Beer is pretty warm by now. A little mushroom. Leafy, shy, bitter finish. Frothy. Strong carbonation that faltered when I needed it.

A bit too sweet & heavy for me. The brett version thinned things out nicely though.

Bought this one in Waterbury at a grocery store I think. From notes.

A - Great colour with a cloudy, light golden. Good carbonation coming up to a two finger fluffy white head. Nice creamy finger of retention and a great wall of lace all around. Looks like apple cider with the yeast added.

S - Orange, mild sweet baking spice. Bubblegum, wheat. Similar to a Hefe. Smelled good. Lot's more orange and banana with the yeast added.

T - More of the same. More sweet spice, some barnyard character. Banana and bubblegum. Not really complex.

M - Strong carbonation, medium to full body. Creamy. A little spicy finish lingering for quite a while.

O/D - Really wasn't anything special to me. Spice was something that was too strong for my tastes. Aside from that there a few good features, but certainly nothing special. Decent, but a bit of a letdown. Too similar to a Hefe.

Best by 11/2015

Pours a clear, pale golden orange color with visible carbonation bubbling up and a 2.5 finger frothy white head that very slowly settles into a lasting ring. Looks a bit over carbonated but has good retention with streaks of soapy lace left behind.

Earthy, musty aroma with a strong farmhouse funk character along with zesty spice, bread-y yeast, light fruit and citrus. Grass, straw and barnyard followed by pepper, bread, apple, pear, citrus rind and pale malt. Slightly floral/perfume-like with a touch of grassy saaz hops as well with some mango and papaya countering the funky/earthy saison notes. Inviting aroma that smells true to style, unlike the Bretta version which is kind of a disaster.

On the fuller end of medium bodied with tight carbonation and a strong earthy farmhouse flavor up front that lingers over the subtle hops, peppery spice, light fruit and pale malts into a dry finish. A bit over carbonated with champagne-like effervescence. Slight resinous, grassy hops compliment the farmhouse yeast giving off a dry, slightly funky and bitter flavor that's countered by spicy pepper/coriander, biscuit and sweeter fruit notes toward the finish, notably apple, pear and light grapes. Subtle booziness but the ABV is decently concealed making this beer pretty easy to drink. Overall, I enjoyed this beer much more than the Bretta version but it didn't really stand out as a particularly interesting interpretation of the style. I'm glad to have tried it but wouldn't seek it out again.

Purchased from K&L Wine Merchants in Redwood City, CA. Opened during our Fantôme tasting day with @LaitueGonflable and @tobeerornottobe, just to throw them off the scent. Upon uncapping, despite the gentle treatment and the solid chilling it received, it gushes out in waves onto my table-top, probably losing about a quarter of the bottle. Inauspicious start.

Colour is a cloudy but bright orange-yellow colour, with a very pronounced, and frothy, crackling head of white. Lacing is messy, anarchic and very full, when it forms. Decent weight to the body, with a nice amount of fine carbonation. Looks pretty good.

Nose has a solid, pleasant greenness to it, a touch of pepper and phenolics and a hint towards acidity. Some sweeter characters sit around on the back as well, perhaps the fragrance of fresh vanilla orchids, but overall it doesn't adapt and express itself an awful lot: it feels like it dumps everything it has on you in the aroma and then disappears. It's still pleasant, but you feel like it could have been excellent.

Taste is clean and mild, with some slight phenols on the back. Slight bite and a clean cider character, and not unpleasantly. Some phenols, and appleskin on the finish, which gives it a slightly biting and almost bitter finish. Perhaps a bit too sharp and bitter, in fact, which gives it a harshness on the back.

Feel is clean but quite light.

Overall, this is decent, but really not exciting, and perhaps even not that great a Saison. Their "Bretta" version is better. It also didn't explode all over my furniture.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a hazy orange amber with lots and lots of dense foam. The head dissipates over time to a thin film, but doesn't disappear, leaving thick spots of lacing.

S: Sweet with notes of yeasty fresh baked bread and orange peel.

T: Medium sweetness, yeast, dry finish.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation.

Overall, not bad, but I'm not enamored of it. Worth a try.
